FROM HENRY VII. TO MARY.                                            63
" OFt have I Ridden upon my Grey Nag."
This is evidently a version of the tune called Dargason. (See p. 65.) The latter part differs, but that may be because this copy is taken from Pammelia, 1609, where three old tunes, " Shall I go walk the woods so wild," "Robin Hood, Robin Hood, said Little John," and this, are arranged to be sung together by three persons at the same time. Perhaps, the two lines from the Isle of Gulls, which are quoted at page 64, formed a portion of this song. Only one verse is given in Pammelia, and I have not succeeded in finding any other copy.
